Dining at the Zanzibar Serena Inn
Constructed so that the waves lap to within inches of its open windows and the lateen-sailed dhows pass within metres of its tables, the Baharia Restaurant features fretwork screens, Omani carvings, Persian rugs and bright Swahili artifacts. The Zanzibar cuisine meanwhile, blends freshly caught seafood, fresh spices, luscious fruit and delicately flavoured vegetables.
The Baharia Restaurant
Lapped by the waves of the Indian Ocean, the Baharia Restaurant offers all-day international and Swahili cuisine. Weekly Swahili banquets are also held around the pool.
The Terrace Restaurant
On the roof of the Inn is our exclusive open-air Terrace Restaurant, which looks out over the bay and features a supreme selection of freshly-caught sea food.
The Masahani Bar
Presented in traditional Swahili style, the Masahani Bar also offers performances by traditional Taarab orchestras.
The Pool Terrace
Indoor and outdoor seating overlooks our pool terrace where a wide range of drinks and snacks are served all day long.
The Mdele Coffee Shop
Adjacent to the pool, the Mdele Coffee Shop offers traditional Swahili coffee, fresh-baked pastries and a wide range of international beverages and snacks.
The Mangapwani Beach Barbeque
A short drive from the Inn, the Serena's exclusive beach hideaway offers a superb Swahili seafood lunch buffet.
We offer a 24-hour room service, which features an extensive menu offering everything from the classic club sandwich to a delicately-spiced curry. We are also delighted to serve a private lunch or dinner in your room or suite; or to provide cocktails and canapés on your private terrace.
